“Today we signed a new contract with the UFC on improved conditions for six fights. And also for the next fight! On March 5th, there will be a belt defense in Las Vegas!" Yan wrote on Instagram.

Last March Yan lost to Sterling by disqualification due to a prohibited knee blow and lost his belt. The rematch was scheduled for October 30 at UFC 267, but the American withdrew from the fight due to injury. As a result, the Russian fought for the interim title with Cory Sandhagen, winning by unanimous decision.
